God's Holy Spirit
Who or what is the Holy Spirit or
Holy Spirit, Holy Ghost, and the
Spirit of God are one and the same.
Holy Spirit: One of Three Persons of God:
The Holy Spirit is one of the three persons of God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. For many of us, this is a difficult concept to grasp. The Bible declares that there is only one living God, yet we learn from scripture that He comprises three separate personages.
Holy Spirit: Much More that an Ethereal Life Force:
The Holy Spirit is not a vague, ethereal life force. He is not impersonal or unthinking. The Holy Spirit is a “person” equal in every way with God, the Father, and God, the Son. The Bible tells us that all the characteristics of God apparent in the Father and the Son are equally apparent in the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit is composed of intellect and will:
1 Corinthians 2:11, “For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.”
The Holy Spirit has emotion, as represented by the capacity to love
Romans 15:30, “Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ's sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye strive together with me in your prayers to God for me;”
The Holy Spirit has specific roles and functions in our lives.
The Holy Spirit has all the characteristics of God, in addition we
John 16:13, the Spirit of Truth as our guide: “Howbeit when He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth: for He shall not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will shew you things to come.”
The Holy Spirit is our Counselor and teacher:
John 14:26, “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in My name, He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.”
The Holy Spirit lives inside us:
1 Corinthians 3:16, “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?”
Our power comes from the holy
Acts 1:8, “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you."
We receive our leading, prompting, and direction from the Holy
Romans 8:14, “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.”
The Holy Spirit is there for us in times of weakness and assists us
in communicating our known and unknown needs through prayer to God the
Romans 8:26 “Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.”
The Holy Spirit is eternal:
Hebrews 9:14, How much more shall the
blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself
without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the
The Holy Spirit is all-knowing:
1 Corinthians 2:11, For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
The Holy Spirit is everywhere.
Psalm 139: 7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?
Holy Spirit: Attributes of God
The Holy Spirit, Father and Son all comprise a unified Godhead known in Christianity as the “Trinity.” A common misconception is that Christians believe in three different gods. This
is not correct. While each “personage” is distinct in function, each shares together in the same deity and each reflects the divine attributes of the one living God.

But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.
For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether
we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.
Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.

born after the Spirit, even so it is now.

This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
Brethren, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
